the only place l know is the industrial catering shop that is on Hospital Street, EB, at the western end of the street, I bought such a thing there, but that was a few years ago, and is certainly no pound shop.

There is also a good plastic ally shop in El Tariffe near that transport café that was recently discussed on here,.......you might try that.

A Pyramidal shaped net with a skeleton made from pre sprung wire, then netting covering the frame similar to that which you use for net curtains...
You can collapse it into the shape of a 2dimensional Tri-angle.. :up

If you had lived in middle class England in the early 1970's you would have know all about them..

Looks useful. I bet you could make your own though with a lampshade and some gauzy fabric.

I was thinking of a net for catching flying food, such as used on sparrows and other small food in many parts of Mediterranean Europe. :-)

I use my mega sized colander. Armor plated to keep the most determined kamikaze flies away from touchdown. :up

In December, I saw the collapsible ones available in various sizes on a stall in the locals souk in the part relatively close to the tourist souk.

I've seem some of the non collapsible domed ones recently too but not sure if that was in Luxor or Morocco - doubt it was the UK as I never seem to get to the shops here!
